I had such fun creating yesterday’s entry in the Design Cuts Epic Second Birthday Giveaway contest (and I could really use that new computer!), so I decided to take another stab at it. This time, I went for something a little more whimsical. I am, after all, first and foremost a photographer, so I started there.
I’m a big fan of Design Cuts. They offer discounted design bundles for creative professionals at an 80-95% discount. For their 2nd birthday, Design Cuts is running an Epic Birthday Giveaway, and I decided, what the hell – I’ll enter.
In late June, we traveled to the Big Island of Hawaii to celebrate the wedding of two of our dearest friends. As I worked my way through the photographs I shot of their wedding, an image of their flower girl jumped out at me. I thought, “You know, this looks like one of those vintage Hawaiian postcards. I wonder…” And this is the result.
Let’s get to know each other a little better, shall we? My parents named me Angela Michele Flinn. Since my marriage in 2008, I’m Angie Flinn Key (not hyphenated, please; “Flinn” is now legally my middle name). I’m Angie, never Angela, since hearing that name instantly makes me feel like a naughty child. (“Angela Michele Flinn, GET IN HERE NOW!”) So call me Angie, please. 🙂
My last post was in August of last year. Seven months. Sheesh. But every time I sat down at the keyboard, I found myself struggling with where to begin.
This hangs, quite appropriately, just inside my studio.
